16 Week Pregnancy Update

I honestly cannot believe I am at 16 weeks already! It really has flown which is exciting and terrifying at the same time.

Like I said in my last post, I have had quite a bumpy ride these past 16 weeks. Suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum is definitely not an easy thing to tackle. You're body is literally fighting the pregnancy hormone causing you to vomit non stop. Weeks 8-10 were probably my worst, where I ended in hospital on a drip because I was literally throwing up every 15 minutes, it was definitely one of the lowest points in my life just because I had no control over my body and nothing I did was helping. As the weeks have progressed the nausea and vomiting have slowed down THANK GOD! I have bad days every now and again but turning the corner into the Second Trimester has brought an end (I hope) to all the craziness.
So I thought I would do a weekly Pregnancy Questionaire. I got these questions off the lovely Anna Saccone blog as I thought they were the best group and most interesting for you guys to read. So here we go...

How far along: 16 weeks 2 days.
Total weight gain: Only 3 kilos so far. The vomiting hasn't helped much with any weight gain, it's the only time in a girls life where she WANTS to gain weight.
Maternity clothes: I have started wearing maternity jeans as my normal ones are little tight around the belly.
Stretch marks: None thank god. I have using my belly oil everyday to help prevent these.
Sleep: I was going through a period of waking up 3-4 times a night but thankfully I am sleeping well these days.
Best moment this week: Waking up today and NOT feeling sick!
Food cravings: Fruit! I am LOVING my fruit at the moment. Real fruit or fruity drinks. I am especially loving citrus things like orange and orange juice have been my favourite this week.
Miss anything?: Bree cheese! Oh my gadded so much!!! And a cider when it's a warm day. Yum!
Anything make you queasy/sick?: Fatty or oily foods like pizza or McDonalds have caused me to vomit so I guess thats a good thing...keeping me away from the junk food!
Gender: Not sure yet we have our scan on the 20th week which we are super excited about.
Labour Signs: None.
Symptoms: Nausea and tiredness have been the major ones.
Belly button in or out: In.
Wedding ring/s on or off: On.
Happy or Moody: Fairly happy...except when I'm throwing up...then i'm sad :(
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender!!
